There is no such thing as a good news source. You really need to look at various sources before you concluding that you have a proper perspective on a story. That's what I do.

Yes there is. It's FOX news channel, in particular, Bill O'Reilly. I watch him every evening. I also like Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingraham and of course, Ann Coulter. All good and reliable sources of the truth and news.

I trust them and rely mostly on what they report and write. Their opinions are to be listened to. They usually measure up too.

I never use only one source of news. Always two, usually three. I want to ensure that I am getting a rounded view of events. With O'Reilly you get opinion mixed up as facts.

Honestly Banned, I don't have any idea which of your news sources are left, right or middle! :mrgreen: What I do is google for the hottest news online and post them here.

Anyway, since I am a so-con I enjoy reading LifeSiteNews articles, other Pro-Life stuff and most especially my daily Bible reflections. I also read magazines pertaining to Family, Home Improvement, Cooking, Cars and would you believe.....Guns! :mrgreen:

The best overall news source I have found is the London Daily Telegraph - conservative, solid commentary, incidentally, the most sympathetic of the British media to the Catholic Church. Also, The Scotsman. In Canada, The National Post and G&M. Never one source in the US but I often go to CNN, Fox, NY Times, LA Times. Because I am not religious I rarely go to such sites.

Remember when Bill O'Loofa said he would destroy our economy if we did not surrender some AWOL US soldiers???? But we dared followed our laws and geve them their day in court?

How did that turn out???? :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

Their economy and currency are in the tank, ours is better than it has ever been in my lifetime. :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

Does the Paris Business Review mean anything to you Zip? Billy pulled that out of his butt.

O'Reilly and Coulter are not news sources they provide opinion. And because they are on TV they are also expected to be entertaining. That is why my news sources are either in print or on the internet, never from the idiot box.

Bang on Paisley.

That is exactly my thoughts on the matter.

If you only get one side of the story you end up with a warped view of the world.
